A two- volume publication, one volume featuring Harry Gruyaert’s photographs of Los Angeles and Las Vegas in 1981, the other his photographs taken in Moscow in 1989

Including an essay by writer, curator, and artist David Campany, this two-volume publication reproduces almost 100 photographs from the series, nearly seventy of which are being published for the very first time.
